With just a few ingredients, this recipe is so simple. The lime, cilantro and sour cream are optional, but really make the dish kick with flavor!
Salsa Verde Chicken Recipe:
Simply Recipes: Salsa Verde Chicken Bake
Very Culinary: Salsa Verde chicken Bake
2 lbs of boneless/skinless chicken thighs or breasts
14 to 16 oz salsa verde (I used two 7 oz cans of HERDEZ salsa verde)
1 1/2 Cups (or more) Colby Monterey Jack cheese blend (Colby-Jack)
1/3 Cup fresh cilantro chopped (optional)
Sour cream – fat free, reduced fat, or regular (optional)
Serve chicken and sauce over rice. Squeeze fresh lime juice on top, add a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle with fresh cilantro. Dig in, YUM!
Black beans would make a great side dish, along with tortilla chips and a margarita!
